For the little Irish town of Ballinacroagh, the repertoire of gastronomic delights has never extended farther than the limp meals of the local inn's carvery. But things are about to change when the beautiful Aminpour sisters - Marjan, Bahar and Layla - arrive, determined to share the magic of their kitchen with the friendly locals. Opening Babylon Café right in the heart of town, they begin serving up traditional Persian dishes and, soon enough, the townsfolk follow the tantalising aroma of fresh herb kuku, lamb abgusht and elephant ear fritters, washed down with gallons of jasmine tea from the old samovar. Well, most of the townsfolk. Not everyone welcomes the three women with open arms - some of the older matrons fear for their husbands, the mayor wants their property for a disco and his foul-mouthed son has his eyes on Layla... A heart-warming and hilarious tale of romance, friendship and exotic food, filled to the brim with recipes, mouth-watering fragrances and mysterious spices.
